Learn how to be safe and successful in a laboratory setting. Discover the basics of pipetting, microscopy, solution preparation, spectrophotomery, and much more while gaining an understanding of proper lab safety protocols and learning how to properly design a laboratory experiment.
Virtual Labs are a powerful tool to inspire, engage, and accelerate learning in the high school science classroom.
"Labster is cost effective, it’s easy to use, and you have a better outcome. It’s great when your students tell their friends, ‘hey, you should take this course.”
Cord Carter, Chemistry Lecturer
Fisk University, TN
“I don’t think there’s anyone who has the same expertise in-house that Labster has. I haven’t seen anyone else working in the field have this level.”
Dr. Philippos Savvides
Arizona State University
“Labster allows a dynamic visualization of chemical reactions so that students can practice and better understand these concepts.”
Dr. Sabine Matallana-Surget
“The virtual labs really help the students become familiar with the material before they engage in the class.”
Dr. Paul Kasili
Bunker Hill Community College
"I think all of the teachers are stretched thin, but the nice thing is that having something that's engaging for the students gives teachers that opportunity to breathe and get excited again. Because they're seeing the kids light up, they're seeing the kids engage with content."
Curriculum Coordinator, Modesto School District, California
“My kids like to play around, they like to do simulations, and they’re very visual learners. They’re all into video games so if you can bring the aspect of a video game into your class and teach your content that way, you’ve got 'em hooked.”
Chemistry Teacher, West Ranch High School, CA
"I would absolutely recommend Labster to other high schools! We’ve had a positive experience using it during remote and hybrid instruction, especially given the increasing number of virtual labs available on the platform.”
STEM Supervisor, Randolph High School, NJ
"Giving students time in Labster to explore prior to the wet lab is invaluable. I can spend time with everyone because those skills were already practiced the night before with Labster."
Biotech Teacher, Livingston High School, NJ
“Everything just clicks really well. There is clarity and great graphics, and it makes students analyze, think and process. If you’re looking for really in-depth rigor, then I recommend pairing Labster with in-person laboratories.”
Coordinator, Biomedical Pathways Program, St. John Bosco High School, CA

Join your friend on a quest to analyze two mysterious substances he got from an alchemist to cure his migraine and learn how atoms connect.
Build your own spectrophotometer to measure the absorbance of a reaction product on Mars!
Enter the virtual microscope room to see inside a tissue sample. Learn how a light microscope can magnify an image and answer biological questions.
Analyze the microscopic structure of the small intestine and learn the advantages and limitations of light, fluorescence and electron microscopy.
Join Marie in the Acids and Bases Simulation and explore the nature and concepts of these important chemical compounds. Measure the pH of chemical solutions, and use your acquired knowledge to evaluate mixtures of acids and base.
Micropipettes are the extended arm of every biochemist. In this simulation, you will learn the art of pipetting in a hands-on experiment, as you try to determine the protein content of a corn cob. Will you be able to help LabsterFood Inc. create a breed of corn that contains enough essential amino acids to fulfil a person’s daily requirements? After playing this simulation, you’ll be ready to show off your pipetting skills when you enter the lab for the first time.
Learn how to handle micropipettes, which are one of the most important pieces of laboratory equipment. Get ready to show off your pipetting skills for those technical microscale experiments when you enter the lab for the first time.
Virtual Labs are interactive science simulations that accelerate STEM learning through gamification. Educators assign labs to students through their internet browsers, where students can train lab skills, visualize abstract theory, and learn science through real-world scenarios.
Elevate your nursing program with UbiSim, a VR solution dedicated to clinical excellence.
"They did the simulation and came to lab, completed it within 30 minutes with no questions, then passed the quiz with flying colors”
Helen Gadegaard explains how you can use Labster in your science course to increase student engagement.
Dr. Melody Esfandiari, conducted her own research on virtual labs in the classroom, comparing grades as well as students' self-reported data about their learning experience. You'll hear Melody's findings and find out what surprised her most.
This guide is designed to help educators teach with virtual labs and the Labster platform, from technical set-up to pedagogical thought-leadership. Get started fast, and discover what you can achieve with science simulations.
